Veterans Day 2013 is celebrated as a Federal holiday on Monday, November 11th. Here are some local options to honor those who have served our country.
Veterans Day 2013 has come and gone...the list will be updated again in the latter part of 2014.

Back in the 1980s Conejo Valley residents would observe a 24-hour vigil during the Veterans Day holiday. I took photos several times, but this 1984 photo at dusk remains my favorite. The current full name of Valley Oaks is Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park. The flame is still burning at the Garden of Valor.
